1160 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains
Fresh flowers, plants, shrubs, and bulbs, along with lots of garden goods:
pottery, baskets, books, magazines, and more.
87 Westchester Ave.
This funky, former ’50s gas station in Scotts Corners is overflowing with vintage and antique planters and garden furniture as well as limited editions of newly crafted pieces.
10 Dakin St., Mount Kisco
Go for garden antiques, ornaments, and furniture, particularly large-scale items from France and faux-bois (cement over a metal frame) benches, chairs, and tables. You’ll also find contemporary items like antiqued-finished clay pots and hand-forged garden tools.
Yellow Monkey Village
792 Rte. 35, Cross River
Orchids, orchids, and more orchids.
(203) 254 – 3952
These impossibly romantic-looking benches, tables, and follies are handcrafted from Oriental bittersweet, an invasive vine that Spector forages from area parks and alongside roadways. No two are ever alike.
1485 Mamaroneck Ave. White Plains
From succulents to sunflowers, from orchids to decorative orange trees, here you’ll find all you need to create your own Garden of Eden.
Pound Ridge Nurseries
6 Pound Ridge Rd.
This park-like nursery has a huge selection of flora (and in winter, fauna too, with a fun petting zoo for kids), landscape services, accessories, and a fabulous seasonal holiday store with whimsical ornaments, faux greenery, and collectibles.
51 Saw Mill River Rd., (Route 9A) Hawthorne
At Rosedale, you can do it yourself, picking out trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals, and planting them yourself. Or, the landscape department can plan, design, plant, and maintain your garden. The company has five nursery locations with more than 600 acres in the region.
Smith and Hawken
696 White Plains Rd.
Scarsdale (Also in New Canaan and Westport, CT)
Go for high-quality gardening tools, accessories, and potted plants, including approximately 20 varieties of orchids. Smith and Hawken also carries its own brand of metal and teak outdoor furniture, complete with storage covers.
448 Underhill Rd.
Everything you need to
garden along with things you never knew you needed.
Sun Valley Nursery
